17-233725 (Assault ): 500 block of David J Stern Walk at 10:01pm
Officers working the event center were notified by security of a fight that occurred on the concert floor. An agitated male suspect assaulted two complete strangers before making his way into a restroom. Officers attempted to contact the subject inside the restroom who appeared under the influence of alcohol and drugs. The uncooperative suspect headbutted a wall, putting a hole in it. After the suspect took a fighting stance with officers, refusing to comply with multiple verbal commands, a taser was deployed and he was immediately taken into custody, safely with no other injuries to others. The suspect was transported to the hospital for precaution and suffered no other injuries during his contact with officers. He was eventually booked for assault and resisting arrest.
